The WMC Action 5 News station in Memphis, TN is home to award winning journalists that compete daily for an on-air position.
Behind the scenes at WMC there is multiple cameras and prompters that allow the show to be presented to their daily viewers.
Anchors that sit behind the news desk have multiple mics and use a mouse to guide their prompter while reading.
On air represents when the news station is in business and running. When the on air sign is highlighted the show is being broadcasted to viewers around the world.
Anchors rely on teleprompters to read the latest news provided and control the teleprompter with the touch of a mouse.
